Glaus to Boston rumor: Not a bad idea

Postby GreenMonsterGoon » Fri Dec 23, 2005 11:04 am

Seems like Byrnes told an AL exec that it was close to getting done. This would change the dynamic of the lineup.
D-Mat, Schilling, Beckett, and Papelbon - Wow!

what would they do with Lowell? Hopefully they would trade him and not try and platoon them at 3B.

I'd imagine, Glaus at 1b, Lowell at third. Although Glaus has never played an mlb game at 1st :-?

Go ahead, take Glaus and give us next to nothing for him. Who cares.

Friggin D-Backs. Maybe I should just switch allegiances and become a Dodger fan. :~(

Simulacrum,

The Sox have already given up H. Ramirez and Sanchez this offseason. You might be able to get a good prospect for Glaus.

:-? this wasnt the first time this came up. something similar to this came up ealier this offseason didnt it?

i dont really see a fit for the diamondbacks and red sox. Maybe they could have packaged Shoppach and some pitching for him, but they got estrada for the backstop now. diamondbacks need pitching, which the red sox dont have to spare. i remember earlier there was a angels-d'back-red sox rumor floating around. manny to sox, glaus to red sox, and some top prospects from both sides to d'backs.

as a yankee fan, if you lose manny and replace is with glaus. :-B

the early talk about acquiring Glaus was with Anaheim in the mix and us trading Manny away. This is a seperate deal on it's own.

Yes, the plan would be to play Glaus at 1st and leave Youk out in the cold. Maybe he'd be part of the deal, he and Shoppach?

The Sox have said they will take the $40mil they had allocated for Damon and use it, so it's stands to reason with no quality FA left they are pursuing some their holes via trades.

Most likely one of Clement/Arroyo/Wells would be the centerpiece of any deal, probably Clement. I would doubt the Red Sox would give up any significant prospects; Shoppach sounds like the right caliber, but with Estrada/Snyder/Hill already in Arizona, he would seem to be less desirable to such a club.

This would largely be a salary dump by ARI, i would think. They wouldn't get anything big back in the deal.
